the george w. bush administration took office in 2001, the altair voyager was caed the condoleezza rice. dr. rice was a long time board member of chevron when george w. bush hired her to be the national security adviser. she had a tanker named after her. yeah, the former oil executive president picked the ceo of halliburton to be vice president and the board member of a chevron who had a tanker named after her to be national security advicer. it was a different time. pity poor chevron because when the bush administration took office, chevron faced the prospect of having one of its oil tankers floating around the middle east or off the coast of nigeria or something with the american national security adviser's name painted in big letters on the side of their tanker. that's awkward. that was awkward even before iraq. so chevron decided in 2001 they would change the name of the condoleezza rice. it would no longer be the condoleezza rice, it would instead being the altair voyager, which is the name of a star, a noncontroversial star. now the woman who once had her name painted or so it would s

fagan, former george w. bush aide and political director. i will tell you two things. 46-46 in gallup among registered voters could be obama's number. 46%. in incumbents are below 50 that could be the number he gets. in other words, a landslide against him. number two, under all the numbers is the economy. that's going to decide the election. that's where the independents are going to break. what do you think? am i right? >> i think you're right. the problem for the president is that this uptick in unemployment is coming at the exact worst time for him. what we see in the numbers, i believe, is that mitt romney is lower than he should be for a couple of reasons. he isn't well known by the public. that will happen at the convention. [ laughter ] >> okay. >> second, he has to put definition on his economic plan. he does those things and the race will break open. >> okay. keith boykin, you're laughing. i love it when you laugh. we love humor on the show. but everybody in the country knows barack obama. if he's still at 46%, what does that tell you, keith? >> first of all, mitt romney has
the first 216 years of the republic, george h.w. bush and obama added 5 trillion to the blink of an eye. so as i was developing the essential arguments for the boat, it occurred to me that he's not just redistributing wealth here at home, although he is absolutely doing that. and the way he has done it is by attacking the four core pillars of the u.s. economy. at the industrial, financial set her, and urges that are in the health care set very. those are the four pillars that uphold the entire u.s. economy and they're all interrelated to everything else. from day one he very methodically and very deliberately went about taking down those pillars because they were built on the free market principle of capitalism and remaking non-ascii massive redistributive schemes. he's been more successful in some areas than others. will see that the supreme court does on thursday with obamacare. i happen to think it's grossly unconstitutional. but he went about it in a systematic way. think about it this way. any other american president would be flipping his lid over eight, nine, 10% unemployment because
. >> and talk about the presidency, then you turn in and get what joe was talking about with george w. bush who can't think -- says he can't think of one. everyone in their own lives knows that you make mistakes all the time. all of us tell ourselves a story to explain those mistakes. >> john, the whole thing, he wasn't admitting a mistake. he was taking a perceived weakness of him, all fluff and no substance, and turning it upside down. he is saying i'm the guy getting the job you done but sorry -- i don't think there was weakness in that. >> he does believe this is a mistake. he's not playing a game here. >> jump in. >> joe? >> jon meacham, i want to follow up and underline what you said. i remember one time, again because i'm a dork, i was very young at the time, but i remember following the 1976 republican primary campaign. ronald reagan was asked a question out on the campaign trail, his response, i don't know. >> yeah. >> and everybody just sat there for a second and then they started applauding. it was some of reagan's people said it was a -- it was just a special moment that connected h
's support of same-sex marriage, and also said he has a soft spot for george w. bush because of what he did for aids. but he added, quote, i'm glad he's not in power anymore. and george w. bush himself seems to agree. he told the hoover institute it was awesome being president for eight years but he doesn't miss it. bush said he has, quote, no desire for fame and power anymore. he said, quote, i crawled out of the swamp and i'm not crawling back in. and that is your morning dish of scrambled politics. >>> now here's your "first look" at how wall street will kick off the day. the dow opens at 12,805 after rising 78 points yesterday. the s&p gained 10, the nasdaq added 13. taking a look at overseas trading this morning, in tokyo the nikkei was down 28 points while in hong kong the hang seng tumbled 215. stocks rose tuesday after fed chair ben bernanke told congress the central bank would consider ways to stimulate growth if the economy further weakens. bernanke's lack of specifics before a senate committee drove stocks lower in early trade. he did say the economy is suffering but eventually j

system is more point than the structures that a republican congress was happy to give george w. bush authority. that was based on the u.n. resolution. i think if we're going to talk about checking and balancing then, i'm not sure how one does it, but to rely on congress vigorously to assert its own pe interrogato per interrogatoritives against the president of their own power doesn't work. it hasn't been accurate since 1800. >> i was going to say i don't think even people in congress want to fix the war powers resolution problem. it's a convenient symbol that congress was doing something about war power as a way to avoid doing the things that congress could do. you could cut off funds or not pay for any of the conflicts. libya might have been so small you might be able to wage the whole thing. the other thing is about the political party thing. kosovo is interesting because president clinton went to war, went beyond the 60-day clock. congress was controlled by the other party. one of the ten things in a contractor was repeal the war powers resolution. you had a case where president
george w. bush did in 2004 in trying to define john kerry. they are doing it on certificate rides in a way we've not seen before with the amount of money and ground game behind it. they've made that choice. whether it works or not we have four months to see. it's totally different. megyn: why do they care about iowa's six electoral votes with all due respect. >> if he can put together the traditional republican states in this election the must win ohio and florida and thanks to karl rove plus one, one more, then mitt romney wins and iowa has got enough. megyn: you're seeing the numbers there is a piece out of the washington times from yesterday or today talking about how president obama is down with young voters, he's down with black voters, he's down with low-income white voters, he's down with post graduate white women and so all of these sort of, you know, erosions in his support are leading to a sense of concern about states that he did win handily the last time around. chris stirewalt thank you, sir. megyn: more for you now on why iowa matters so much for the president. his c

last three presidents would be mitt romney, barack obama and george w. bush, three men who personally have very little love for politics, very little love for the sport of it all, very little love or understanding of the grand sweep of history, unlike say a bill clinton or a ronald reagan or an fdr. there just doesn't seem to be the joy in these guys either on the campaign trail or when they're governing. they seem to be -- well, at least the two that are running this time technocrats. >> they're competitive without being cheerful. i any what mark just said is exactly right, that politicians get in trouble when they act as though they're pundits or color commentators. you think about obama -- wandered into the truth but that editorial meeting in washington state in 2008 when he said reagan was transformative but clinton wasn't. >> nevada. >> reno. >> however true that might be, it was the wrong way to say it. >> you can't say it as a presidential candidate. >> the thing that really struck me about looking at romney in london was his lack of agility. it was this incredibly stiff presen

speech writer for president george w. bush and julie ro begin sky, former adviser to new jersey senator frank i lautenberg and -- frank lautenberg and a fox news contributor. this is not the first time we've seen joe biden deliver the message that the other guy, you know, romney, they just don't get you, or the republicans, they don't get the real working class, middle class americans. they don't understand them. this is all in the context of arguing for a tax hike on wealthier americans, marc, and he talked about that wealthy people are just as patriotic as poor folks, they're just as deem as middle class folks, but no one asks them to do anything and that they need to understand better the concept of shared responsibility. your thoughts? [laughter] >> well, i think, look, i think mitt romney has given them plenty of opportunities to make this kind of of attack from the swiss bank accounts in the cayman islands to the $10,000 bet with rick perry and all the rest. but let's not -- let's remember, barack obama is the guy who in 2008 said ha working class americans were bitter and were cl
dispatched the campaign's chief counsel, top lawyer ben ginsburg, representing george w. bush in the florida recount in 2000. it's not the first time he's been dispatched to a convention by the romney folks, but we have noticed when his name comes up in the news reports, it's invariably in connection with efforts to wrangle ron paul supporters. wrangle ron paul supporters who are trying to take over the state and delegates for themselves. for whatever reason, this weekend, the romney campaign sent its top lawyer to the nebraska republican convention. when the two sides squared off in nebraska this weekend, what happened? the ron paul folks, very excited for their last chance to be the camel's libertarian nose wiggling its way the to the main stream republican tent, and the romney campaign dispatching their top staff to hold the tent firmly in place, to keep the camel out. what happened this weekend in nebraska? the camel got smoked, and that's a quote from the omaha world herald who described the ron paul revolution as failing to materialize this weekend in nebraska. quote, in the end, the p
percent say wall street and 18 percent site former president george w. bush. others say it paks the economy better but as the recovery is taking longer due to the deep economic trouble he inherited while taking office. mr. romney attacks the president on the economy saying the president is out of ideas and out of excuses and back against squaring off. >>> live in washington kelly wright, thank you. >>> it is time for your first degree weather update with ms. maria molina. it is like hot an humid here. >> it is very gross across the northeast humid in new york city, temperatures in the 70s. we are going to deal with that in the early morning hours. as we head west ward the big story has been the extreme heat and extreme drought conditions as well. i want to show you a temperature right now. in kansas city it is 89 degrees very early this morning. this is a truly warm for this time of the day. 89 degrees in kansas city. 82 in the city of chicago. you are going to feel that warmth in the morning hours and afternoon hours you will feel the heat as well. kansas 100 degrees. we are ex

, and guess who is on the list. former president george w. bush, k bailey hutchison, the former senator and former senator phil gramm. what are they talking about? >> well, it just shows how loosely constructed the doj's own expert said, i will read a direct quote from him in the trial, i was not asked to weigh in on the question of whether or not they would be able to vote. so this list was created to maximize the number of people that might be able to vote. it doesn't have a real basis in reality at all. >> what will happen with this decision, and what do you think the fate of voter id will be in this state? >> well, it is in the hands of the three-judge panel now, eric. it will be up to them to decide. unfortunately the way the law is written, eric holder does president have to prove his case. we have to prove he is wrong. ultimately it may result in the repeal of section five of the voting rights act which would be a great thing. >> well senator tommy williams and the other co-sponsors will await that decision by that panel in washington. thank you for joining us this morning. >> th
, if there were a lot of republicans saying no to president george w. bush in the republican national convention. i didn't see it. >> we should stress you're an encyclopedia on that. at that point, president-elect was unpopular and john kerry, 6 to # points ahead. >> there are a few examples this year of republican candidates, senator hellers from nevada, not going to the republican national convention. so there's about five of them. but if you look at the amount of democrats not going to the democratic national convention, we're well over a dozen candidates and those elected running for reelection. there's more to come, this is a very high number. >> if you're the president and get reelected, do you remember the folks who dissed in. >> in some cases i think he probably encourages them to -- i think in claire mccass cal as case he probably suggests she doesn't. he wants to retain the senate if he wants to get anything done. it's his advantage to have those do what they have to do to stay in office. >> all right, good seeing you again. have a great 4th. >> same to you. >>> coming up. >> i am payi
george w. bush, i'm the daughter of liberian immigrants. liberian immigrants had a deferred action program that worked very well for many years. there is even a song out where liberian immigrants thank george w. bush, and that being one of those reasons. but i think we have to be, you know, really specific about the community we're talking about, these young people who are future scientists, doctors, lawyers, contributing to american society, aspiring citizens. rick: understood. >> and prioritize the prosecutions. martha: let me just say i think it's very important to focus on who we're talking about. and there are very, very many worthy individuals, and that's who the program is designed for. i think it's great that the worthy individuals could qualify for some relief. the concern is that there could be an individual who is 28 years old at the prime recruiting age for al-qaida who lies to the government, said he's been in the country since he's 7 years old and that individual just by saying he went to high school is now eligible to work in the united states. we've seen how the mex
called herself mildly pro-choice. but the potential george w. bush hangover and not wanting the job, she would be a surprise. the other bush brother jeb remains popular with republicans especially in swing state florida. he speaks spanish fluently and he is popular with latino leaders. there is also brother george. jeb bush has moderate views of accepting the trade of higher taxes for spending. that could hurt. and as a consistent presidential favorite, he could upstage romney. another potential surprise, marco rubio. they see him as a rock star. he could help with the latino vote and at 41 bring some youthful energy. with less than two years as senator, will he pass the heartbeat away test? he could bring unwanted attention to romney's religion and his brush with foreclosure and credit card debt. finally somebody who surprises, donald trump. very unlikely here. in trade which trades stocks has trump at one cent a share. all the rest, all penny stocks. at $2.50, tim pawlenty is a penny stock. >> let's go to rich gaylin and democratic strategist chuck roacha. good morning. >> hey, chris.

constitutional. that decision was made possible by the chief justice john roberts appointed by george w. bush, and believed up until recently to be a conservative. there's a fascinating piece by cbs news sort of unwinding how this came to be in it. in it, i'm quoting now, roberts pays attention to media coverage. he's sensitive to how the court is perceived by the public. do you think it's possible that after reading weeks of "new york times" editorials attacking him preemptively for ruling against obamacare, chief justice roberts decided to rule it constitutional? >> i think that's possible, tucker. i don't know the guy. it certainly is possible. but, you know, i look at that decision, and as much as i hate it with every fiber of my being, because it's an immoral, horrible, euthanasia law. i believe fundamentally when he said i'm affirming the individual mandate, he gave us each of us an individual mandate to defeat barack obama, retake the senate, and repeal this law. he basically said, i'm not going to do your job for you. go out in the streets, win this election, do it like we do it in a
congress enacted and george w. bush signed in 2004. totally bipartisan effort to change what had been a 1947 dismodel. we passed the basic pillar for our intelligence and defense agencies in 1947, geared against the soviet union. and we never changed it until after 9/11 when it was clear that one, the soviet union ended in 1989 but two, the threats were completely different against our country. so the reform set up a joint command structure called the office 6 the directioner of national intelligence, across 16 intelligence agencies. and the idea is not to build a bureaucracy but to leverage their strength. and our intelligence capability is better. our national intelligence estimates which are the way we assess what is going on in different countries are much stronger than they were. and i think it would be much harder to make the mistake that we made on what is the destruction in iraq so we're better. the agencies are doing better. what we're missing is a very clear legal framework around our post 9/11 policies. we've never been able to do that because congress doesn't work very wel
former president george h.w. bush, about 18% in cuts. and then former president clinton. clinton did start to increase defense spending during his term but it still ended lower than where it was when he took office. another thing that stands out to me about this chart is defense spending. you're looking at real terms defense spending is higher now than it was in the cold war or even during vietnam. it looks like it was higher during world war ii although there were extraneous spending items then. that's not an entirely fair comparison. but the chart is courtesy of the center for american progress and the department of defense. so when you look at that, you have to ask the question, do the claims of national security disaster add up when it comes to the sequestration? i asked that question to someone who should know the answers. wes bush, the ceo of northrup grumman. >> sequestration could have a devastating impact on our overall economic condition. you mentioned 2 million jobs lost. that could raise the unemployment rate on a national level about 9%. we're talking about both defense
%, in real terms. ronald reagan cut defense by 10% in his second term. george h.w. bush cut it. so this is right in line with those. that seems to make sense. >> yes, when you're talking about percentages, always matter where is you're starting from. i think it's more instructive to actually look at the dollars being cut f. you look at the total between defense and non-defense, it would represent a reduction of over $100 billion in the coming fiscal year. and that's really the number you have to focus on that translates into the economic impact that we're talking about. so a structure today, this would be a precipitous set of cuts that would happen very quickly, would happen without the benefit of strategic thinking on how they would be applied. to do that at a time when our nation continues to face an array of security issues around the globe that demand our attention, demand our presence, demand our military capability, really does not make any sense. >> so are you saying, then, that on a percentage basis, that these cuts would be fair, but your problem is the way they're going a
